This is an ok Weissbier, Not too much to say about it that hasn't already been said. The fluffy white head gives off a soft fruity smell, light spicy notes as well. The beer is opaque and yellowish gold. This is a pretty tradtional brew though and it's not bad.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bananas are present in the nose along with some notes of wheat.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the wheat flavors are stronger than the bananas and there also are some additional flavors of apples. No cloves are detectable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has some refreshing properties, but I wouldn't consider it to be thirst-quenching. It lacks the complexity exhibited by the top beers of the style but isn't a bad hefeweizen if you like basic flavors of wheat and bananas.

Can into Budweiser pint glass (all that was available) in low altitude Galway, Ireland. Reviewed live.

A: Four finger head of nice cream and thickness. Above average retention. Hazy standard weissbier muted orange colour.

Sm: Wheat with hints of citrusy esters, though less pronounced than in other weissbeers. A rather light scent.

T: Cream-laden wheat with some mild citrus esters, mainly orange and little else. A bit watery on account of too much thin cream. Pretty simple. Balanced decently but built poorly.

Mf: Nicely slightly coarse, but too wet. The watery aspect of this beer is a severe problem.

Dr: The esters need to be brought out more. The cream is unwelcome in this style. It's affordable in Ireland, but not a great beer. Go with the Lidl grafenwalder if you're looking to get bollocksed on a cheap hefeweissbier.

Can: Poured a light yellowish color weizen with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light bubblegum notes with some wheat malt. Taste is also dominated by light notes of wheat with some light bubblegum ester. Body is too light for style with good carbonation. This is too watery to be interesting with a serious lack of character.

Poured from a 1-Liter can into a large mug glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy yellow color with a large foamy white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, light caramelized malts, bananas, some citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of bananas, caramel and a little citrus. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

I brought a 500ml can home from a recent trip to Europe. The beer poured a cloudy deep golden color, good head that dissapates quickly. Smell is includes cloves and fainted hint of banana, lemon and spices. The mouthfeel is light to medium body with the taste similar to the smell, with more banana being more pronounced. Not the best I've tried, but one you can drink easily.

Mid sized bottle. w/o freshness/brewing date info. Pours darker apricot/sludgy brown, cloudy , under a wonderful puffy one inch head, that stays. It slowly eases into a mottled pillow of light khaki froth and leaves a mustache tickling pillow on top of this tasty offering. Plenty of strands of stick. Nose is the expected fruity, yeasty melange. Nice tasting and easy drinking German wheat. Bananas, light cloves/coriander all add to the fun. On the lighter side adding to easy drinkability. Helped wash down a chicken sausage sandwedge with ease. First time I've tried this one and I like it. Well worth a try.

Pours a fully clouded brown gold with a huge white head that falls, but sticks around for a little bit. Nose is earthy and tar-like yeast. Flavor is a bit lighter at the start than I would have figured with what I got on the nose and how it looks. It lifts itself up fairly quickly though. Lemon tones with a fairly strong yeast body. Very mild tar on there. But the aftertaste is what is really key here. Man does it stick around. Feel is nice and smooth on the liquid and with a decent bubble. Pretty drinkable. Smooth and even and well made. Nothing showy at all. Just a decent hefe. Worth a shot.

Poured from a giant 32 oz. can. Has a cloudy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of banana, wheat, light spices. Taste is milder than the aroma. Banana, wheat, and cloves are all present, smooth and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking summer beer.

Where Park is average in pilseners, they hit a home run with this weizen. Pours hazy orange/golden with thick, rocky head. Aroma is spot on, banana, clove, bubblegum, wheat. Taste is also there, with nice heavy, silky mouthfeel. Park has a new fan....

The beer pours a cloudy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It's got a light pale and wheat malt scent along with a wonderful yeast aroma. The banana and clove esters really stand out in this one. The taste is great. It has smooth, malty flavor that goes down easy and finishes fruity with some light breadlike character. The malt bill seems a bit more complex than your average hefe. The yeast offers up a nice array esters that climax in the finish. The mouthfeel is good. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is one of the best hefes I've had in some time. It's easy drinking and full of flavor.

Poured a cloudy medium straw hue with a four finger foamy white head. There was very good retention and good lacing.

The smell featured an estery yeast typified by banana nd clove aromas.

The taste consisted of a soft, yet spicy yeast, and an earthy and estery yeast. Decent doughy finish.

The mouthfeel typical of the style with a slight chewiness.

Overall a tasty and authentic hefe.

From the crowler, which was on sale for $2.99. Best By date of 20 July 2017. Sampled on August 24, 2016.

The pour is a cloudy looking pale yellow underneath a moderate white foamy head that fades down some and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is certainly exhibiting the wheat, lemongrass, and toasted bread character but there is an off-putting soapiness that I also pick up.

Light to medium body.

Wheat flavors and a mildly grassy finish. But that soapiness seems more noticeable in the taste than on the nose. Semi-dry and clean finish.

Valentins weisbier

LOOK: 16.9 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass. Hazed deep cloudy straw color. White foam forms, and gradually recedes. Looks sexy in its proper glass, perhaps a shade or two darker than the norm.

SMELL: Estery clove, cotton candy, herbal elements and rustic bread. Some clean German yeast makes itself known.

TASTE: Cotton candy, full grain bread, green banana, clove. Handsomely flavorful and very true to the style. The sweet grains add a nice bit of mustiness to the beer as well as depth. Hop flavor is leafy and herbal, with a well suiting complimentary bitterness.

This is a very fine Hefeweizen, with rich flavor and fine balance. Paired very nicely with a meat and cheese platter. I'm sure ill be drinking this again. Excellent hefe.

500ml Can

Appearance - Hazy gold/amber colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. I can't make out much carbonation due to the haziness and there isn't much lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes.

Smell – Breads/grains, cloves, oranges, bananas, lemons

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste lemon zest and orange mixed with breads/grains and some cloves. There is also some light banana flavour and it finishes with a citrus spicy aftertaste.

Overall – This is a very drinkable beer that would work well as a summer refresher. It won't blow you away but it's very serviceable and the price is reasonable. I'd buy it again.

BB 27/02/2008, served chilled in a weizen glass.

A: a cloudy dark orangey-yellow hue comes with a slowly-retreating off-white pillowy head and rather moderate carbonation; not bad in appearance.
S: mildly sour mangos and a lightly dusty note come first, ensued by rich, sour-sweet note of yeasty drinks, grainy wheats, and an intensifying flow of sugary malts. Very fruity and sweet, while the hardly recognisable spicy edge of clove hides itself a bit TOO well.
T: powdery and light wheatiness and mild caramel make the entrance, soon followed by a thin wave of sour-sweet yeasty-fruits (denoting passion-fruits, mangos, and a little bit of bananas), while in a remote corner also lingers a mild white-peppery spiciness. The finish is short but pleasantly dryish-sweet and clean. Overall, not bad at all.
M&D: quite soft in terms of fizziness apart from being slightly thin in the aftertaste, making this a relaxing weizen to enjoy; where the complexity is somewhat lacking, the soothing mouthfeel makes up for it. Well worth a try - as a session weizen!

From a large brown bottle, this brew is a murky, cloudy gold color with a puffy white head. The head produces a fine lace. Nice aroma too...a bit of banana, loads of yeast, a touch of sweet citrus, and a lot of bread and flour. It's a raw and unrefined smell, but it's quite good...a bit wild. The taste is earthy and rustic, with lots of lemon, orange, and yeast flavors. It's like a baking bread mixed with orange and lemon peels. There's also a bit of smoke in the background of the taste. It's odd and a bit misplaced, but I like it a lot. The body is a bit heavier than others of the style, with quite a lot of carbonation. A bit lighter would have been more appropriate. This is a fine beverage.

Color towards brown, a little unusual for wheat beers styles.
Flavour is initially hit by banana, bread and yeast, then it follows by citric notes, and cloves for last.
Light body and tiny bubbles.
A little more sweet than others wheat beet styles.
